The annual Dechen summer retreat was held once again at Sakya Changlochen Ling, our main European Centre in South West France. Eighty people attended teachings given by Lama Jampa Thaye on Sakya Pandita's text Discriminating the Three Vows.
In the course of the text Sakya Pandita takes the opportunity to offer a masterful critique of some misconceptions regarding the original Dharma teachings which were prevalent in his time.
Students attending these teachings were able to see that Sakya Pandita's examples of correct and incorrect understanding all have parallels in our own experience of practising Buddhism today.
